Can anyone tell me which books they would recommend a newbie read about lawn care and such. I'm sure the lawns in Canada are much the same as in the States, so cross border reading would be aloud...lol.

I am unsure if your looking for books on running a lawn maintenance business or looking for books on how to take care of the grass in your lawn.

suggestion on taking care of grass:
Orthobooks-all about lawns
www.amerinursery.com - both lawncare and business
The Chemical-Free Lawn-by Warren Schultz

Lawn maintenance operations:

Lawn Aeration-Turn Hard Soil into Cold Cash by: Robin M. Pedrotti

A Guide to Developing a Landscape Maintenance Business
Published by- Associated Landscape Contractors of America and National Landscape Association

These books can get very expensive so read discriptions carefully
before you by:

hope this helps
